      Great Connector For Sennheiser

      I bought this to change the connector on my AKG C420 headset so it would work with a Sennheiser EW 172 wireless system body pack. Once I figured out how to connect the wires, I soldered it up and it works fantastic. Plugs right in and screws right on to the Sennheiser body pack input. What's great about it is that it is an all-metal connector - no plastic that breaks. There's an internal plastic cover that covers the connectors so they don't ground-out on the screw on cover, and the smaller "boot" on the cable end is a hard rubber type material that helps keep the cable from flexing too much. There is an internal clamp-type strain relief. What I didn't like about it was that there were no instructions on how to wire it, so I had to figure out which pin was the signal and which was the "hot" for the phantom power. However, this is a great connector and it will do exactly what it needs to do and fits the Sennheiser body packs perfectly.

      Sennheiser replacement parts are cheap as chips.

      The soldering connections were substandard for a professional connector.

      The soldering connections were substandard for a professional connector.

      You get what you get here: No frills adapter for custom uses. Probably used for your G3 wireless kit no doubt.

      It works, I wonder how long tho.

      Their replacement XLR to 3.5 mm cords are no better. I wanted to make my own.

            Works great, easy to solder, just wish, considering it is a replacement part for the Evolution series, that it came with a diagram showing where to solder each wire. I figured it out just fine, but a diagram would have saved some guesswork.

                Our theatre company has used these connectors many times when the factory installed connector on the MKE-2s went bad. These connectors had a life expectancy far less than the factory connector. Then Switchcraft started making their own with the model number 35HDLBAUS. We've changed all of our microphones over to the Switchcraft connectors and in 18 months have not had a single failure with them. Vastly better than the Sennheiser connectors.

                  There are many sites that sell 1/8" (3.5mm) connectors that would have fit my use,some locking and some not. The B&H sales department assured me that the locking threads on Sennheeiser body packs would work with this connector. Upon reciept of connectors I was very pleased with the quality of the connectors, and the ease of attaching the small heatset wires to the pre tinned solder pointsThanks

                    I previously bought the ones that were a buck less and the Sennies are worth every penny more. Don't take my word for it, buy both and see which one is easier to work with. The buck less ones melted very rapidly from the solder gun. The blue plastic inner structure loosened from the heat rendering them worthless at that point. I'm not a professional solderer so blame me applepebble! Sure beats buying a new lav at [$] but I did anyway for back-up...2 actually. Thanks BH and Sennheiser.

                        I took a Sennheiser MKE-2 gold lavaliere microphone I bought in an auction on a website evidently I cannot name here that starts with e and ends in bay. The mic had a TA5-F connector and soldiered this on. This allowed me to use it with a Sennheiser MZA900P for a wired connection into an XLR audio recorder. It was pretty simple (though the lavaliere wires are super tiny.)

                                  I used this item to connect a lectrosonics lavaliere to a Sony transmitter. It works great and easy to solder wires to. I plan to rewire my other lavs. to this connector. The amount of money I save in doing this myself is significant. If you are a professional you should always have a couple of these connectors for when your talent does something stupid like try to take of the mic themselves.

                                  Sennheiser replacement parts are cheap as chips.

                                  The soldering connections were substandard for a professional connector.

                                  You get what you get here: No frills adapter for custom uses. Probably used for your G3 wireless kit no doubt.

                                  It works, I wonder how long tho.

                                  Their replacement XLR to 3.5 mm cords are no better. I wanted to make my own.

                                  Comments about Sennheiser Locking 1/8" (3.5mm) Connector:

                                  I bought this to change the connector on my AKG C420 headset so it would work with a Sennheiser EW 172 wireless system body pack. Once I figured out how to connect the wires, I soldered it up and it works fantastic. Plugs right in and screws right on to the Sennheiser body pack input. What's great about it is that it is an all-metal connector - no plastic that breaks. There's an internal plastic cover that covers the connectors so they don't ground-out on the screw on cover, and the smaller "boot" on the cable end is a hard rubber type material that helps keep the cable from flexing too much. There is an internal clamp-type strain relief. What I didn't like about it was that there were no instructions on how to wire it, so I had to figure out which pin was the signal and which was the "hot" for the phantom power. However, this is a great connector and it will do exactly what it needs to do and fits the Sennheiser body packs perfectly.

                                    The connector for my Wireless Mic lavelier set-up was crushed beyond use, and I was either faced with having to replace the complete mic, or try and fix it myself. I ellected for the latter, and it worked out perfect. A quick soddering job and the lavelier is like new. And all for less then $10.00!!! Saved me 100's of dollars... [...]

                                    Easy to solder, strong piece, locks nicely and has a good price. The only thing I didn't like was that it didnt come with any type of boot for the typical small diameter cable you would solder to it resulting in a little cable in a twice as big opening. The strain relief is like what you would find on a standard switchcraft 1/4" plug. The clamping kind where the metal bends. Overall good plug.

                                      This is the special connector (correct length and locking) for the Sennheiser wireless products, like the Evolution G2 and G3 series.
                                      Just be sure you understand how to properly wire it for your application (electret mic/line level inputs, or line level output). The Sennheiser site has diagrams and app notes.

                                        the cable that came with my evolution wireless system for guitar was about as cheap as you could possibly expect. add this connector to a mogami cable and a good right angle 1/4" connector, and all of a sudden the EW100 system feels and behaves way more pro and way less entry level wireless.
